A blue and white silk brocade court robe, jifu, for a man, woven with nine five-clawed dragons chasing flaming pearls amongst clouds, flower sprays and butterflies. The dragons on the skirt surrounded by buddhist emblem, and cranes in roundels above a hem with a deep wave and water border, lishui, supporting large dragon-carp. The neck edging and sleeves similarly decorated on a brown ground and the sleeve extensions banded in white.
